We encourage all our swimmers to come and join in this initiative on Saturday at the Gym.
Marina Martinique Swim
Following a number of complaints about the early morning swim training, we have had to make the following changes:
From March we will be swimming on Tuesday and Thursday in the evenings at 6 pm. We will still be meeting at the gate as usual.
Swimmers may still swim on other days between 4.30 pm – 6.30 pm from Kingston Place flats. All swimmers are welcome to join JBay Swim and attend our training sessions at Marina Martinique. They will need to pay a registration fee of R 300 which will entitle them to a JBay Swim t-shirt and swim cap.
Application forms can be obtained from Isabeau Joubert reception at JBay Dentist in Schelde Road.
C League Gala
There is a C league gala at the Sunridge Park Primary School in Port Elizabeth on Saturday 25 February. All swimmers who have not taken part in a B league gala may swim in this event. Please be at the Sunridge pool by 8 am at the latest to enter.
Please note that swim fees are payable in advance. There was an extraordinary amount of bad debt in 2011 and all parents and swimmers are urged to play the game and pay when the invoice is received.
Money can be deposited by EFT and please use the swimmers name as reference.
See you in the water!!
